Many colorful threads make up the fabric of the more than one hundred neighborhoods in and around beautiful Savannah, Georgia. And hardly anyone can weave stories about those areas more poignantly than longtime journalist and native Savannahian Polly Powers Stramm. A University of Georgia graduate, Polly has been writing about the city's residents for three decades and has selected a handful of her favorite newspaper columns for this book. Also included are never-before-published interviews with local residents who recount memorable childhood experiences in areas such as Ardsley Park, Twickenham, Fellwood Homes, Gordonston, and dozens of other neighborhoods. This unforgettable journey through Savannah takes readers to mom and pop stores of days gone by, to old movie theatres on Broughton Street, to the beaches on Tybee Island and nearly every stop in between. This truly is heartwarming local history at its best.
